I have been to upset the last few days to share this but here it goes.
As you know, for some personal and medical reasons, I will be moving back to England at the end of Sept. Due to some miscommunications, it is going to cost me around $2000 for my baby Tanks ticket, not the ~$500 I was planning on.
Tank is my everything. I have been with him everyday for the last 10yrs, since he was 6 weeks old (His 10th birthday is in December!) I know some people don't like me calling him this, but he is my child.
This isn't really a secret, but I have been struggling/battling with depression and anxiety most of my adult life, since my mother tragically and unexpectedly passed away when I was 14.
Tank has been my biggest form of emotional support. When I am struggling or having a 'bad' day, he is right there for me. If I am sick or injured, he is right by my side (I will even have to force him to go outside to relieve himself). As I write this now, crying, he is lying sprawled across my stomach and legs. I'm sure if he could, he would be with me 24/7 but those pesky things like life and work tend to get in the way.
He is my life. I will be a complete wreck if I can't have him with me when I start this new chapter of my life. So I am asking, no begging, my Facebook friends and family for help. I have been gifted $500 from a very kind man, but still have a ways to go before I can buy his ticket. Of course, to add fuel to the fire, I am in a time crunch. ANY amount you can give will help. Even if it is a few dollars, pounds, rand or euros,it will all help. If you can't donate, of course I understand, but ask that you share this post to get the word out.
Thank you for taking the time to reading this (hope I didn't bore you too much) and hopefully for your support. Of course my bubba thanks you too
